The Steam Deck was shown yesterday on the Norwegian state channel NRK when talking about the state of the games industry in Norway, about how Norway need to invest more in games.

Annoyed they showed a pic of the Deck when starting the reportage because it's not available here, still.


It's on category number 11 in the video.
I'd love to play this game, anyone know the name?


Also having watched that, I don't know of any games or studios from Norway, but I do from the rest of the Nordics. Even Iceland has CCP.

EDIT: Having looked it up, Funcom is from Norway. I always thought they were finnish...

Can't help you with that screenshot, but Red Thread Games is from Oslo. They made Dreamfall Chapters. And Funcom is the company that some of the Red Thread Games people worked on before, who made, among other things, The Last Journey and the first Dreamfall game. Their MMO The Secret World was pretty big.

It's not a game, it's a funny thing NRK made for the reportage.
Yeah I know, it just looked so goofy haha.

Yeah, thought Funcom was finnish for some reason, but they are big. Never really heard of Red Thread before, I thought Dreamfall Chapters was made by Funcom. It's kinda weird though that the swedish games industry is so vibrant compared to it's neighbours (I might be a bit biased in my thinking too).

Curious what sort of piles of shits 2023 will bring us. Climate catastrophes? New pandemic or global medical crisis? Alien invasion? A war? New cold war?

Alien Invasion would be nice for a change. Maybe we could stop being dicks to one another for me than five minutes.

Nah, we are fucked...

Darktide has turned out to be a bit of a disapointment to me now. With more emphasis and thought put into the cash shop than anything else. With just 4 base classes, a handful of maps and the enemies being Nurgle again when there are so many other things that could have been done (I would have loved a Genestealer cult slowly morphing into a full blown Tyranid invasion).

The main reason it is so disappointing though is that the core gameplay is so much fun.. The moment to moment gameplay is great. Going from ranged combat to melee is great and the weapons are there to suit many different playstyles.

A shame really.

I really agree with the last part especially.
Actually playing the game is insanely fun, especially with a good, communicative team on high difficulty.

But due to the complete lack of variety or metagame, you just very quickly have your fill, especially as switching to another class is a pain in the ass with everything being locked to each character (which wasn't the case in Vermintide 2).

Me playing Bayo 3 on emulator: this needs a PC version.

Also, Bayo 3 is somewhat dissapointing so far. The best thing is the combat, everything else, eh. Hope it changes.

I've been playing it also (on switch- not handheld). It does need a PC Version. The combat is indeed great. The story is nonsense, just like Bayonetta 2, so no change there. But yeah.... Viola is just not as much fun to play as. Makes some sections drag quite a bit.

I just get bot responses from steam support.. so i marked my account for deletion
made a new account.. i find out my phone number is blacklisted as well.
okey please explain to me mr gaben how im suppose to resolve this case when im stone walled by your stupid auto response bots..
it took a full bloody month last time i had to deal with steam support to get phone verification working.
All the responses i got from steam support was blaming my phone provider but in the end it was your stupid sms provider that was broken.

It was such a strong year for TV shows I could probably list 15 that I loved this year. And I still haven't even seen Andor, HotD or Wednesday.

Movies on the other hand...I think I only really liked 2 films all year. Everything else was meh.

Is your CC and phone from the Taliban or ISIS or something? Or the dark web?

Did you threaten some Valve employees in any way?

Your problems are so crazy.
